FOCUS: Hand-washing Stations in Mozambique

Imagine if you didn't have a clean place to wash your hands. Access to safe, clean water is always important, but the COVID-19 pandemic made it even more of a necessity.

Communities across Mozambique lack the basic sanitation required to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The Mozambique Initiative helps meet the greatest needs of partner communities in sub-Saharan Africa. Our partners in Mozambique shared their hope to supply hand-washing stations to all Methodists institutions across the country - hospitals, schools, church missions, orphanages, elderly centers and churches.

Your donation towards hand-washing stations has an impact that extends past the need for clean water. Many schools and churches can’t safely resume activities until preventative hygiene measures are put into place. In Mozambique, these organizations are often central and essential to daily life.

It costs $400 to build a hand-washing station and provide supplies, such as disinfectants, soap, masks and temperature measurement devices. Mozambican manufacturers construct the hand-washing stations, so your donation has the added benefit of supporting the local economy.

Donate this #GivingTuesday at www.mzinitiative.org or mail your check to 3601 Amron Court, Columbia, MO, 65202 with "Hand-washing stations" in the memo. Thank you for supporting global health this holiday season!
